Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581GV

Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Asus has once again made another revolutionary statement through the official release of the ZenBook Pro Duo UX581GV. The worldwide audience is bound to be amazed by its extraordinary design, as this particular laptop model features a secondary screen which is responsive to touch and subsequently facilitates a smoother workflow with a guaranteed increase in productivity. First of all, one would notice that the ZenBook Pro Duo’s primary screen display only measures up to 15.6 inch wide, which in itself is a common measurement standard for premium laptops to leave any significant mark in the industry. However, do not be fooled by the common standardization of the device – the ZenBook Pro Duo boasts an astounding 3,840 x 2,160 screen resolution on a 4K UHD main display. This specification alone puts almost all of the laptops in the selfsame industry into great shame. To top that off, the ZenBook Pro Duo also features an OLED touchscreen coupled with a DCI-P3 color gamut. The DCI-P3 color gamut is the latest standardization of color range commonly used in cinema production companies in the directorship of any upcoming silver screen wonders, which can also be found in most high-end gadgets and devices such as the likes of Apple. This further eludes to the fact that the ZenBook Pro Duo is more than capable of delivering otherworldly visuals and graphics when it comes to content creation or mere viewing pleasure alone. Once the laptop cover is flipped open, users will instantly notice the secondary screen which is cleverly positioned just above the keyboard. This strategic positioning of the keyboard is purposed as such in order to work in great tandem with whatever presented on the main display. Aptly named as the ScreenPad Plus, this secondary screen not only responds to multitouch with haste, but also provides a layout of built-in customizations and options for users to explore. Ranging from the essential App Switcher to the handy dandy Task Swap, users can even put forth their penmanship into great use through the Handwriting feature, which allows them to jot down quick notes and record their thoughts should a creative muse strike them at any time of the day. The ScreenPad Plus also collaborates well with tasks from a variety of professions such as programmers, video editors, 3D animators, and also game streamers. Avid gamers are going to be in awe upon discovering that the ZenBook Pro Duo is also, undoubtedly, a powerhouse of gaming-grade components with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 discrete graphics amplified by the ray-tracing power of NVIDIA Turing architecture for the ultimate realism channeled forth from the gaming world.

The Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581GV is a laptop that is designed to give the ultimate edge in workflow efficiency. The unique design features a full-width 4K ASUS ScreenPad Plus that works seamlessly with the main 4K UHD OLED display. The 4K UHD NanoEdge OLED HDR display on the ZenBook Pro Duo is truly amazing, with a four-sided frameless design featuring ultra slim bezels. The brilliant OLED touchscreen delivers ultra vivid colors and deep blacks, with a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 color gamut making it a superb all-rounder for professional work and entertainment. With the ZenBook Pro Duo and the bundled stylus or other active stylus, users can really let their creativity flow. Both multitouch displays support stylus input, but the ScreenPad Plus gives a superbly ergonomic and stable platform for writing or drawing. Users can take notes, sketch out ideas, or do precision graphical editing in the most intuitive way ever. There’s also a separate palm rest in the box, which enhances the ErgoLift tilting keyboard design to give the most comfortable typing experience ever. The ScreenPad Plus gives effortless app multitasking, so ASUS works closely with third-party developers, including professional video-editing software developer Corel, to optimize the ScreenPad Plus for the ultimate productivity. As for design, the brand new Celestial Blue color draws its inspiration from the future and gives the ZenBook Pro Duo a sophisticated air of timeless innovation. As befits such a revolutionary concept, it’s also decorated with a unique asymmetric version of the iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish. It is an intriguing design detail that gives the ZenBook Pro Duo a totally unmistakable identity. The sides are finished with wide, mirror-finished, diamond-cut edges, which reflect surroundings to add a subtle touch of ambient style. The ZenBook Pro Duo is powered by up to a 9th generation Intel Core i9 eight-core processor, the latest gaming-grade NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics and blisteringly fast storage. This ultra powerful combination ensures that ZenBook Pro Duo takes professional-quality tasks in its stride, such as multi-layer photo or video editing, 3D graphics rendering or even game live-streaming. Additionally, the latest gaming-grade NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 discrete graphics is powered by the NVIDIA Turing architecture. With this game-changing GPU, users can enjoy the power of ray-tracing for the ultimate visual realism. Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) also helps boost performance significantly. Besides that, with the processor’s unprecedented 5 GHz Turbo Boost frequency, the ZenBook Pro Duo can effortlessly handle all the apps on the main screen and the ScreenPad Plus. As a conclusion, the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581GV is a powerful laptop that has a very new feature, which is the ScreenPad Plus. It might not be an affordable device to own, but it is a great device for creative users who often need to work with a stylus, or users who are generally interested to try out the new feature.

82.4% ZenBook on Steroids: Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581 Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Asus' latest ScreenPad Plus makes the Apple Touch Bar look like child's play. The unlocked Core i9 CPU, GeForce RTX graphics, 1 TB Samsung SSD, and soldered 32 GB of RAM are hefty specifications that come with an equally hefty chassis and price.
80% Asus ZenBook Pro Duo review (UX581GV): Between the sublime and the ridiculous
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Asus ZenBook Pro Duo's 4K OLED screen is superb, the keyboard as good as any put into a laptop, the trackpad almost confusingly usable, and we'd never say no to a RTX 2060 graphics card. We're even charmed by the ScreenPad Plus, much more so than the second-screen models that Asus has slipped under some of its trackpads in other models (such as the ZenBook 14). However, start prodding at the second screen feature to see what it can really do and it will often start falling apart at the seams. Which is a shame, as when it's good it's really, genuinely usable. All in all, the enBook Pro Duo meanders between the sublime and ridiculous. And we rather love it for that.

In summary then, though the ZenBook Pro Duo is pricey, it offers superlative specs and its ScreenPad Plus offers a unique experience that you can’t find on any other notebook in the market today. It’s up to users to determine if it’s something that will really benefit themselves, but it’s hard to argue that the ZenBook Pro Duo doesn’t offer something special and at a pretty reasonable price too.

80% Asus ZenBook Pro Duo (UX581) review: Double the creativity
Source: The Indian Express English
Overall, this is not a device I can recommend for everyone because this is not a device for everyone. But for the very creative among us, especially those in the Microsoft universe, this is a dream device. Yes, it is pricey, but the bump you will get in productivity will balance out the costs in a while. But this is also not a perfect device, as many innovative devices tend to be. But that is the risk you will take as a first mover.

Whether its the smartphone or the laptop, more screens are the future. And with the ZenBook Pro Duo, Asus has tried to make use of the existing resources to bring more screen dream to consumers in the present. With the addition of a small display, there's a lot that you can do with your laptop and once you get used to it, it becomes difficult to go back to any conventional laptop.

75% Asus Zenbook Pro Duo Review: Two-Screen Dream
Source: The Verge English
But the ZenBook Pro Duo did sell me on the idea of a second display on a laptop, even if it doesn’t quite manage the execution just yet. It’s a first-generation product of a radical new way to use a computer — so of course Asus doesn’t have all of the pieces solved just yet. Presumably, the next generation of the ZenBook Pro Duo will improve, as will other dual-display laptops with different screen sizes and form factors over time. There is a great laptop buried within the raw clay of the ZenBook Pro Duo. Hopefully, Asus (or another company) will take the time and effort to find it.

ASUS Launches ZenBook Duo Pro in Australia
Source: Gadgetguy English
You will recall the big thing from ASUS in 2018 was the ScreenPad – a combination touchpad and FullHD display. You could set it up as a numeric keypad, run videos in it and so on. This year the ScreenPad 2 added functionality, was easily editable (like a smart phone) and has been included in models across the ASUS range from the relatively affordable Asus VivoBook S15 (Model, S532, prices starting at $1,399) to the Asus ZenBook Edition 30 (model UX334, priced at $2,799) with its hand stitched pearl white Italian leather finish.

ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo Review

The ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo is undoubtedly impressive. As mentioned, it’s not that common to see a laptop that’s equipped with two screens and have programs run on both of them. The hardware included is decent, and ASUS also gives users more than enough RAM to go to town and multi-task however they want. This device is definitely meant for creators and streamers who are into games.

92% ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo (UX581GV) Performance Review
Source: B2G English
The concept of multi-monitor laptops isn’t new but done the way ASUS has done for the ZenBook Pro Duo, they definitively set a incredibly high-standard for usability. Still, this usability may vary on what kind of user you are. ASUS has marketed heavily for multimedia professionals like video editors, music products and heavy office users and to some extent, gamers. For the most part, all those listed will benefit greatly from the increase in real estate if their workflow already integrates these things and their level of expertise can utilize the screen greatly. That being said, the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo isn’t ready-to-go, plug-n-play kind of solution and requires a certain level of familiarity with their workflow that would justify the increased cost of the screen, otherwise an ROG laptop would easily surpass the ZenBook Pro Duo in specs and performance.

However, the design and execution of the ASUS Zenbook Pro Duo have a lot to improve. It’s a great innovative step forward, but several small steps back.

If you're a multi-monitor addict who's fed up of feeling constrained by your laptop's paltry single screen, then the Pro Duo could be pretty tempting - not least since it packs more than enough power for just about anything you'd care to throw at it. On the other hand, if your typical multi-tasking is limited to a few browser tabs and a music app, there's really no need to put up with the compromises that the Pro Duo necessitates.

On the other hand, if your typical multi-tasking is limited to a few browser tabs and a music app, there's really no need to put up with the compromises that the Pro Duo necessitates.

ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo hands-on: The coolest dual screen laptop yet
Source: Hardware Zone English
Furthermore, while the overall design is very similar, there is no digital number pad here, nor is there a dedicated Turbo Fan button, likely owing to the less demanding specifications. The ZenBook Duo will feature the latest Core i7 chip and an NVIDIA GeForce MX250, which should be a lot easier to cool than a ZenBook Pro Duo configured with the highest specifications.

Asus ZenBook Pro Duo dazzles with double 4K displays

You can get used to a tight keyboard, but it may be harder to forgive an ill-placed touchpad. We'll find out for sure when we eventually review this promising laptop. Asus says the Duo laptops will be available in the third quarter of this year.

ZenBook Duo, Pro Duo Hands-on, Quick Review: The Notebook Of The Future
Source: Unbox English
If you’re willing to settle for slightly lower hardware and can’t handle the sheer size of the 15.6-inch model, you can opt for the ultra-book version of the device, dubbed the ZenBook Duo. The display panel gets downgraded to a 14-inch, full HD IPS panel, with the ScreenPad Plus shrinking down from 14-inches to just 12.6-inches. Intel’s Core i7 chip powers this particular notebook, with RAM topping out at 16GB. 1TB of PCIe SSD storage can still be had, though the GPU gets downgraded to NVIDIA’s GeForce MX250.

Asus Zenbook Pro Duo hands on – are two screens better than one?
Source: Android Authority English
During our brief time with the Duo series we felt like the idea has some potential but that its second screen’s placement makes it a bit awkward to use. To help somewhat combat its unique positioning Asus did angle the bottom part of the laptop, which also helps with airflow. Nonetheless, the Zenbook’s dual-screen approach is less ideal than side-by-side monitors but we do applaud Asus trying something new. For what it’s worth, we like this approach better than Asus’ standard Screenpad.

Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581GV-H2002T

The Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581 and as well as the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX481 are interesting series for me. Reason for that is, that they have a second screen. It may sound like MacBook models with Touchbar, but we are not talking about a basic stripe bar here, we are talking about a real second screen. In this model has an additional 14-inch screen. Innovation is good, but what about usability? This is the first question that comes to my mind. I think it kinda makes sense for business laptops. Think about this: you are working on a report and you need extra information from different files and you are on the go. Open them on the second screen while you are working, easy! For a gaming laptop? While you are stationary I don't see the real value. Considering the fact that this model comes with an RTX 2060, you will most likely have to be connected to an outlet all the time while playing. A second integrated screen vs. an external monitor is open to discussion. I would prefer the latter not just because of comfort, but also from the price point. ZenBook Pro Duo models have a wide range of configs with different options. But they are not cheap. This model for instance, costs more than 3.000 USD. When you consider the degrading of regular laptops (anything except Macbooks in this case), it is highly likely this model will lose its value by at least 20 % next year. With 600 USD, you can buy a great monitor. I can not criticize the concept, because it is something new. Maybe there will be a limited production. Other than that, there is literally nothing to question about hardware. Because it provides almost everything that is top notch right now. RTX GPU, latest 9th generation processor, Thunderbolt, WiFi 6. The question is, how much these components would cost without the second integrated monitor? Well, the answer is out there. From the recent notebooks I checked, I can say something in between 2.000 to 2.500 USD. So, the extra monitor is not coming cheap. There is another aspect, which is weight. The Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581GV-H2002T weighs around 2.5 kg. I believe it would be very close to 2 kg without the extra monitor. It is hard for me to make a suggestion. It will be really a hit and miss. Because for me, the second screen will barely have a usage while it will not be even in my view point. I have to lean in closely to see what is going on in the second screen and also while doing something, having something else moving would distract me. Of course you can disable the second screen, but then it will be an expensive disabled screen. So, it is how you call it. If you see the fit to your needs. Go ahead.

ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo Review: The Notebook Of Tomorrow Isn’t For Everyone
Source: Unbox English
The ZenBook Pro Duo definitely has a lot of things going for it. Its primary display is big, beautiful and a joy to work on, and the secondary display gives content creators extra space to work on. Multi-taskers will probably love the expanded workspace. Unfortunately, the laptop of the future has a few flaws, chief of which is practicality. You’ll be spending quite a bit for the luxury of that extra screen, with the model we reviewed priced at Php 169,995. The Core i9 variant is even higher, at Php 199,995. You can buy a pretty decent and powerful notebook and a secondary screen with a chunk of change left over. That’s not to say that ZenBook Pro Duo is useless, it’s just that it’s difficult to recommend it to the general population in its current form.

82% Asus Zenbook Pro Duo (UX581) Review — A Multitasker’S Wet Dream
Source: Pokde English
Now, there are a few things I hope ASUS would improve in the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo. Cooling, would be my main concern. The current setup is astonishingly quiet even under heavy loads, but unfortunately the temperatures are a bit too high. The current layout also means less available space on the sides for ports. While the current setup offers fast USB 3.1 ports, more ports for stuff like peripherals would be welcome.

80% Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581 review (UX581GV- Core i7, RTX 2060, OLED) – dual-screen workhorse
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Zenbook Pro Duo UX581 is not the kind of notebook a value-oriented buyer would get. But at the same time, if money is no object, this dual-screen computer is so unique and different than everything else out there that it might just make sense for some of you. In fact, Asus calls it "The laptop of tomorrow", and while that made me smirk at first, it might well be a glimpse into what's coming in the next few years. There's still plenty to perfect about this first generation, though, so for now, make sure you're fine with its quirks and throw in extended warranty, just in case...

Don't write the ZenBook Pro Duo off as a mere novelty without trying it. This may or may not be the future of laptops, but for creatives, multi-taskers, and the attentionally challenged, the second display quickly makes a case for itself. The question is how much you're willing to compromise to get it, with rubbish battery life and a giant chassis. This isn't perfect, and future dual-screen devices will find better ways to make the form factor work. But this is one hell of a first attempt.

There's still plenty to perfect about this first generation, though, so for now, make sure you're fine with its quirks and throw in extended warranty, just in case...

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile: Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.

Intel Core i9:

i9-9980HK: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates eight processor cores clocked at 2.4 - 5 GHz (4.2 GHz with 8 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). Offers an unlocked multiplier that allows overclocking of the CPU.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

i7-9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).
